Bob Booth: Kayaker’s dad offers thanks
May 28, 2005
To the city of Steamboat Springs police and fire departments: My deepest thanks to you all for the help you gave to me during the search for my son in the Fish Creek kayaking incident on Friday.
Thank you Paddler Magazine kayak volunteers, Yampa Valley Medical Center and Jamie Neault. My special thanks to police officers Jerry Stabile and Dale Coyner. You two are the best. You both definitely knew how to handle the situation at the time. You knew what I had to do and you let me do it. You both gave me moral support after my search and gave me strength.
To all the Steamboat Springs volunteers who shared in my relief and joy at the news that my son was alive and safe.
